Private Presidential Pathways: The Photography of George Tames (February 8 - March 4) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Private Presidential Pathways, a collection of candid presidential photographs by the late New York Times photographer, George Tames, will be on exhibit at Ingram Library from February 8 through March 4.  The exhibit is sponsored by the Ingram Library’s Penelope Melson Society.

George Tames, the New York Times White House photographer from 1945 to1985, had a career spanning the presidencies of Franklin D. Roosevelt through Ronald Reagan.  Tames was an expert at capturing each president’s personality and character, as well as the stress under which each worked.  His iconic image of John F. Kennedy silhouetted in the Oval Office has become emblematic of the American presidency and the weight of the position.
"Private Presidential Pathways" displays twenty-eight of George Tames’ images.    

During the exhibit, Dr. Bruce Schulman, William Huntington Professor of History at Boston University, will present Three Elections that Reshaped the Presidency and the Nation – 1964, 1968, 1972, on Tuesday, February 23, at 11:00 a.m., in Ingram Library.  On the day of Dr. Schulman's talk, special public parking will be provided in the Townsend Center gated lot, accessible from West Georgia Drive, beginning at 10:00 a.m.

Just Listening
7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The University of West Georgia’s College of Social Sciences is partnering with Veterans Heart Georgia, an Atlanta-based non-profit organization, to introduce a veteran-focused “Just Listening” circle to Carrollton. The community-based initiative brings local veterans and community members together to “just listen” to veterans share their stories. “As the name suggests, the modality is simply to facilitate a safe relational environment in which veterans can truly be heard, without being judged, given advice, or told what they should do or how they should feel,” said Dr. Larry Schor, UWG associate professor of psychology and licensed professional counselor. “While it is not therapy, it can be very therapeutic.” The “Just Listening” circle is held the second Tuesday of each month from 7-9 p.m. at Carrollton Presbyterian Church near Adamson Square in Carrollton, Ga. The circles are open to veterans, family, friends and community members. For more information, please contact Dr. Amber Smallwood, assistant dean of the College of Social Sciences at 678-839-5170.

Private Presidential Pathways: The Photography of George Tames (February 8 - March 4) (Multi-Day Event)
All Day

Private Presidential Pathways, a collection of candid presidential photographs by the late New York Times photographer, George Tames, will be on exhibit at Ingram Library from February 8 through March 4.  The exhibit is sponsored by the Ingram Library’s Penelope Melson Society.

George Tames, the New York Times White House photographer from 1945 to1985, had a career spanning the presidencies of Franklin D. Roosevelt through Ronald Reagan.  Tames was an expert at capturing each president’s personality and character, as well as the stress under which each worked.  His iconic image of John F. Kennedy silhouetted in the Oval Office has become emblematic of the American presidency and the weight of the position.
"Private Presidential Pathways" displays twenty-eight of George Tames’ images.    

During the exhibit, Dr. Bruce Schulman, William Huntington Professor of History at Boston University, will present Three Elections that Reshaped the Presidency and the Nation – 1964, 1968, 1972, on Tuesday, February 23, at 11:00 a.m., in Ingram Library.  On the day of Dr. Schulman's talk, special public parking will be provided in the Townsend Center gated lot, accessible from West Georgia Drive, beginning at 10:00 a.m.
